with a question that everybody in washington's asking. are the democrats going to be putting up joe biden for president in 2016? here's how the vice president answered that question when asked yesterday. >> is there any reason you wouldn't run? >> oh, there's a whole lot of reasons why i wouldn't run. i haven't made that decision. and i don't have to make that decision for a while. >> so are you ready to run against hillary clinton in 2016? >> i haven't made that judgment, and hillary hasn't made that judgment, but i can tell you what. everything that should be done over the next two years that i should be part of would have to be done whether i run or i don't run. if this administration is successful, whoever is running as a democrat's better positioned to win. if we're not successful, whoever runs as the nominee is going to be less likely to win. >> you know, mike allen, there are a few reasons why joe biden might not run. one of them that i can think of right off the top of my head is if a meteor crashes into the naval observatory, a la armageddon style, perhaps he wouldn't run. but we
election, for example, i think the most racially divisive comment of the entire election was joe biden's comment where he said if the republicans win, they are, quote, going to put y'all back in chains. that made my heart weep to see a sitting vice president playing to racial fears and playing on those issues. i think that's unfortunate. i don't think it has any place in politics. >> chuck hagel, you were very tepid on "meet the press" a couple of weeks ago. >> i was. >> now you've met with him, you're more comfortable, you'll support him? >> i am. >> what changed? >> i said on your show that i had real concerns. i spent 90 minutes with him. i asked him very specific questions on the things that troubled me. his answers were forth right. and they were answers that alayed my concerns. should we keep every option on the table to prevent a nuclear iran? yes. i went further. i said, do you think we can tolerate a nuclear iran? he said no. and i said to him, well, then, if we had to use military as the only choice, would you? he said yes. second, i asked him hezbollah and hamas, should they
to an abc/"washington post" poll with favorability at 67%. contrast that to joe biden who's at 48%. just a number to put out there. >> i also think it's interesting, when you're talking 2016, she was very clear about separating herself from the thing that got the most political flap. she had nothing to do with susan rice being chosen, she said. she had nothing to do with the talking points. she walled that off. and instead focused on the things that -- and she had a very legitimate way of describing where her focus was. but when so much of the political talk in the final weeks of the election campaign were about talking points and so forth, which is its own legitimate area, it was interesting to see how careful she was in making certain that she had no part in that. >> one other story we were talking about at the top of the show, the pentagon today will announce that women will now be allowed to serve in full combat roles. at first they'll be phased into roles working as medics and manning artillery, but eventually they could serve in elite commando units directly in the line of fire. fo
